Indian Creek Campground now taking reservations online
CARSON CITY, Nev. – As of March 1, customers have been able to reserve campground sites on Recreation.gov, including the BLM-operated Indian Creek Campground, which is adjacent to Indian Creek Reservoir in Alpine County and is scheduled to open on May 4, barring weather.
Recreation.gov is a one-stop resource for reservations, trip planning, and information for recreation facilities and activities offered by the BLM and many other Federal agencies. One of the BLM’s and the Department of Interior’s priorities is to connect families and kids to public lands, which connects them to America’s natural and cultural heritage.
For the 2018 transition season select sites are reservable and remaining sites will continue to be first come first serve. By 2019, most campsites will be reservable on recreation.gov.
Recreation.gov is the largest outdoor recreation reservation service in the US with over 60,000 reserve able facilities at over 2500 field locations. Recreation.gov offers advance reservations for Federal facilities and activities such as individual campsites, cabins and lookouts, group campsites, tours, picnic shelters, and wilderness permits.
Indian Creek Campground is one of the best campground values in the Sierra Nevada with hot showers, flush toilets, an RV sanitary dump station, paved roads and parking sites, and bear-proof storage lockers available at each site. Other facilities at Indian Creek Reservoir include a boat launching area, day use picnic area, three loop interpretive trail system and over eight miles of hiking trails. Camp hosts are available on-site.
The main camp area has 19 sites that accommodate RV and tent campers. Six of these 19 sites are considered “double” occupancy sites since they have two parking spots, two tent pads and two picnic tables. This area has flush toilets, hot showers and drinking water.
The walk-in tent area, located south of the main camp area, has ten sites that can accommodate up to 15 tents (15 pads). Four of the ten tent sites are considered “double” occupancy sites since they have two tent pads and two picnic tables. Sanitary facilities in this area include vault toilets and potable water.
